Except - what Heck said was true and is plainly documented on ssa.gov, Social Security's website. There are not sufficient workers to support those drawing off the system. Further, you continue to draw SS until you die (and then even some survivor benefits), even if you exhaust your "account". What makes it a pyramid scheme is that people collecting now paid in substantially less than they take out, due to longevity. When you take out more than you paid in, and rely on people lower on the pyramid to keep your money coming, guess what, it's a Ponzi scheme.

Or just maybe - those of us that actually work to produce the revenue these leaches survive on don't have the option to take time off to sit at these hearing. We depend on our representatives and governor to look out for us. We don't need new taxes, we need responsible spending.

He invested it all right. Like making a million dollars on a land sale for property he hadn't owned for three years. He also claimed to have had a successful law practice that he made his money in. The one he had from 1981 to 1983 only. He worked in public entities before and after. Apparently he thinks people are stupid enough to just accept what he claims without looking into it. Only some people are.
